Husqvarna 142 gas oil mix?

My friend has loaned me her brand new chainsaw but she cannot find the owner's manual. She's never used it. I do not know what the gas/oil mix should be and don't want to guess. Does anyone here know what the mix should be? Please, specify the type of oil I should use as well. I do have chain bar oil. Thanks!

Mix it at what the oil you are using says. New 2 cycle engines use 50:1 mix. That is what I use in my older chainsaw and in my weed wacker.

50:1 is fine. You need two stroke oil. Castoral and stihl spring to mind as the two best makes.
